I have been a paediatric diabetes consultant since 2006. In my first consultant post I set up a paediatric diabetes service from scratch, including an insulin pump service. I initiated a local paediatric diabetes charity and used the monies raised to take the children and young people on local activities and also residential activity weekends.
I was one of the founder members of the national Association for Children’s Diabetes Clinicians and became the treasurer, setting up the initial account. I continue to be an active member of the ACDC committee and am involved in the guidelines group. This year I am running the ACDC national trainees study day.
I am currently involved in the BSPED special interest group looking at our national paediatric DKA guideline.
In 2012 I moved to Wexham Park Hospital where I head up the paediatric diabetes team. Our team is currently involved in the national Quality Improvement project.
